Finding themselves. Fighting together. Growing apart.

It's junior year in Quapaw City, Arkansas. With it comes a new foe that even the Freaks cannot thwart--adulthood. As they ponder what the future will be like with college and careers looming, they must contend with the ever-more-perilous threat of The Team, the shadowy government agency bent on saving the world from supernatural menaces. At the same time, they must face their most dangerous adversary yet, a creature of scales and wings that threatens every life in town--just for starters. New
questions arise: can the Freaks achieve a common goal when they no longer agree on precisely what that goal should be? And what happens when they realize they just might be the villains in someone else's story?
